Hooray, it’s done! Now it needs to be framed. I love Victoria Sampler band samplers; between learning new stitches and the overall sampler design, they keep me interested all the way through and the end result is always so pretty, making all the hard work worthwhile. This design reminds me of an antique wedding gown, all lace and pearls. Click on the picture on the left to see the larger (1 MB) version.
I have, however, started the Châtelaine Designs Peacock Garden Mandala — better late than never! Part One is almost complete; I’ll post photos when it’s done. So far, the colors are gorgeous, rich greens and blues. A big change from working with all white. And I’m working on the JOB box lid and base. But for now, here’s a last look at the Hardanger section of the sampler.
